The 6-7, 225-pound Illinois native, who averaged eight points and eight boards per game last season at Brewster, signed with the Rams after canceling a visit to St. Bonaventure set for this weekend.
``He's a blue-collar, hard-nosed kid," Brewster coach Jason Smith said. "He understands his role and does the dirty work. He sets screens, rebounds and has great character. He's a perfect fit for Fordham and is from Chicago, so he liked the fact of being in the city."
``The academics are really good, so my parents loved that," Binns said of Fordham. "The coaches made me feel like family."
